Hi, I would ask for your help. I did an update of Arch today morning, after this i can,t boot Arch. I added nomodeset to kernel but it just doesen,t work, won,t boot. I tried to run it from usb media, i downgraded kernel to 3.9, i downgraded intel drivers but still no luck. I have Acer Aspire AOD 270 with GMA3600 driver and Intel Atom procesor. Could somebod help me? It stays at Welcome Arch sign.

Chroot in and establish what was upgraded. Check for .pacnew files. Look in journalctl. Without specific error messages, any suggestions or recommendations will be guesswork.

Everything was upgraded. All packages. I had older Arch installed. There is no error during boot, just it stops.

How long was it since last update? There may or may not be several news items on the front page related to your big update.

You can find out when you have updated the last time by reading /var/log/pacman.log . Then check if there were news items since that date.

Re: After update Arch stays at Welcome Arch - arch live iso the same

I think that there is something wrong with Arch. I downloaded the latest from 2013.11.01, copied to usb and on the same screen Arch stops. I see outputs and when there is Welcome to Arch Linux, it stops. Infact, i can't even run it from live media because of this. I will try from the older one but i think that even if it will work i won't be able to rescue Arch because packages from the newest do the same thing that occured to my installed Arch.

Re: After update Arch stays at Welcome Arch - arch live iso the same

I tried to run Arch from usb - the newest is broken. It stays at running cleanup hooks (udev), than there is Welcome to Arch Linux sign and it stops there. I booted Arch from usb from 06.2013 and it workd but i won't be able to downgarde packages from it, or install again because even when i boot up 06.2013 and run pacman -Syy than it would install Arch from the newest packages from repo and i think that it is broken because iso from 11.2013 stops at the sime time, the same sign.

Re: After update Arch stays at Welcome Arch - arch live iso the same

1. Stop bumping this thread: learn to use the edit button.

2. What video card is in your machine?

3. Add the relevant module to your mkinitcpio.conf to start early KMS

4. There is nothing wrong with Arch, except the number of people that want to use it without reading any of the documentation.

1. Intel GMA 3600 with Atom N2600 - Acer AOD 270.

3. My driver is iinstalled, it is something wrong not with it because it stops during boot after checking of root partition in text mode with nomodesert in kernel parameter. Also, the same thing happens on live usb with iso from november, but iso from june works, boots but than upgrades all of it and installation fails to boot,

4. Well, i could debate, i read a lot cause i like it, and in fact there are errors in documentation, for an example: related to installing nvidia driver, xorg.conf and 20-nvidia.conf.

BTW - i know that it is pointed towards me, but belive, or not - i read a lot, i only ask when i can't find a solution over the net, arch wiki or on other media. This problem is very strange - even iso from usb won't boot, on 2 computers (one desktop, one netbook). As a matter of fact, i've been reading since thursday about this problem.
